Why this book?: I love sci-fi horror, and this one came highly recommend by a few friends. I was also doing a weekend buddy read with a few friends (Owl, thank you for making me read this book).

Not Your Backup Book Cover.jpg

With more on her plate than the average high school senior, Emma Robledo does the most logical thing: drop out of school. Fighting the corrupt government with superpowered team is definitely overwhelming, especially for someone without powers.


Why this book?: I’ve really enjoyed the rest of the Sidekick Squad series, and I can’t wait for Emma’s side of the story to be brought to the forefront.

I would like to thank Interlude Press for sending me a copy in advance via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

36233085When Ari Helix and her brother Kay crash-land on Old Earth, the last thing they expect to find is a sword. The VERY last thing Ari expects is the sword to be the legendary Excaliber, and for her to be the forty-second reincarnation of King Arthur.
